Having not yet seen Divergent, I have no earthly idea what’s going on in any of the promo materials for The Divergent Series: Insurgent. The teaser was inscrutable and the full trailer was fun but still left me confused. But you know what? This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I applaud the fact that they’re aiming for the base that really understands the material. The last four or five Harry Potter movies were like that, plunging you into the narrative in a manner that required you to have seen the earlier films, and they were the better for it. Hopefully that’s what is going on here.
The Divergent Series: Insurgent character posters are easier to understand though. You can check them out below in regular form and animated form. The film is due in theaters and iMax 3D on March 20th and stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Octavia Spencer, Zoë Kravitz, Ansel Elgort, Mekhi Phifer, Naomi Watts and Kate Winslet.

Here’s the synopsis for The Divergent Series: Insurgent:
THE DIVERGENT SERIES: INSURGENT raises the stakes for Tris as she searches for allies and answers in the ruins of a futuristic Chicago. Tris (Woodley) and Four (James) are now fugitives on the run, hunted by Jeanine (Winslet), the leader of the power-hungry Erudite elite. Racing against time, they must find out what Tris’s family sacrificed their lives to protect, and why the Erudite leaders will do anything to stop them. Haunted by her past choices but desperate to protect the ones she loves, Tris, with Four at her side, faces one impossible challenge after another as they unlock the truth about the past and ultimately the future of their world.
